RAID-0 or RAID-10
Feb 26, 2007, 1:13 PM
I am willing to buy a new computer mostly used for capturing and editing video..
I am thinking of two options regarding hard drives..
1 x WD Caviar SE (160GB/8MB Cache) for the OS
2 x WD Caviar SE16(250GB/16MB Cache) in RAID-0 for processing video files.
1 x WD Caviar SE16 (500GB/16MB Cache) for backup and archive.
4 x WD Caviar SE16 (250GB/16MB Cache) in RAID-10
which option is better in terms of performance and reliability? is there any significant difference between the two configurations

I recommend option 1. You may want to consider RAID 5 too.

I agree. RAID 10 is prone to array degradation. Seriously check out RAID 5 though. It offers the best of most of the raid world.
